Bristol City Women have named Birmingham City assistant coach Tanya Oxtoby as their new manager.

The Women's Super League 1 club have appointed the Australian to replace former head coach Willie Kirk, who stepped down in May.

The 36-year old has previously worked as assistant coach for the Perth Glory Women and Australia Under-20s.

"The player pathway here at Bristol is massively important and speaks to me as a coach and manager," she said.
